For all those who celebrate the Moon Festival, I hope you enjoy those mooncakes! My dad brought home boxes of them and we ate and gave away all of them in two days.

Three spinach have sprouted, and I seeded some Swiss Chard. The chickens started eating from a 50-lb bag of layer feed Monday. They go through it quickly. The carrots came up already. I’m surprised when people complain of the long germination rate of carrots. Mine always come up within a week or so.

Last Friday, I came home and made some pasta to use up some of the eggs sitting around.

Pasta dough


Fettucine

It was very good and thick.
